No, because the KTTW card will be RFD and not magnetic strip activated

Yes if I was there I would probably change just knowing what I know but the average person there does not know and when they see Disney giving them 3 Fps before they arrive they will be ecstatic. The problem will only come from the ones that talk to people that stayed at other resorts. That will not be many so ignorance will stay bliss.

Oh and though I do not have the schedule in front of me I do believe Pop Century was either first or was in the first block of resorts offered FP+.

They are referring to the testing card. Opting out of the test would deem you the traditional KTTW card.

How would one opt out of the test? I have a trip planned for end of Feb. and would much rather maximize FP- then use FP+. If I go onto to MDE and customize my MB's and select FP+ times, am I "agreeing" to the test?

Just do not accept the invitation via email, mail, or at check in and do not sign up for MDE

Am I the only person interested in knowing the source? This could very well turn into the Oct 27th thread where everybody that wanted to believe the rumor took it as fact and argued with everybody that didn't. Without a source I don't think anybody should take anything in the first post as fact.

On the plus side, I still have several trips worth of recent KTTW, so as long as they don't turn that off I still have the opportunity for "fist fulls"

The source is the CM hub.

We'll find out in a couple days.

I'm willing to bet there is a 50-50 chance that you can't "opt out" and get a normal KTTW card. It will be the "stripeless" card either way, and POP guests will be locked out of Fastpass, and forced into FP+.

With apologies to Billy Joel:

Say goodbye to Fastpass...
Say goodbye to paper...
Say goodbye to Fastpass...
Say goodbye to spontaneity.

Will you please post back and let us know? I'm thinking that you are correct that even if you receive a KTTW card, whether in testing or not, it will not pull FP-. It was the next logical step in the MB/FP+ testing.

During any testing Phase when monetary property is involved, they have to give the customer an opt out. It's a legality. A customer has to freely accept participation. Unfortunately by signing up for MDE, you are accepting participation.

  • Yes, you cannot make FP+ selections for your 1/10 trip because your AP expires before that date. Once you renew it you will have access to FP+ selections for the 1/10 trip.
  • Nothing is actually stored on the MagicBands. They simply have a chip that can read your MDEx profile in Disney's database. Anything you have linked there (room reservations, park passes/APs, FP+ selections) will be accessible with the band.
  • If you are staying on property for the 12/13 trip you will get a set of Magic Bands for that stay and another for the 1/10 stay. Both will work the same way as they simply read your profile. You can wear either of them on any given day. Any bands you have will work and will read whatever you have linked to MDEx at the time they are scanned. Tap both to your resort room door when you first enter to set them as keys.
  • You should get a hard-copy AP when you renew. You can use either it or your MB to enter the parks. The AP is simply linked to your Magic Band, it is not stored on it.

Not quite true. People had access to MDE well before they were offered the option to test MB or FP+. MDE != FP+ OR MB

Evidently we have a CM Hub, which is awesome! They posted it. Josh also posted it on easywdw.
